Layoffs are happening in the Hershey corporate offices now. Started in late Feb. 2018 and is expected to continue for 3 quarters. Seems to be mostly admin type positions. They seem to be keeping it very quiet. Morale is low, to say the least. Supply... read more

You can never tell if layoffs are planned, but if HR has too many meetings with closed doors you got to be freaked out. I am in Hershey.
It's karma. They interfered with free enterprise and took choice away from the consumers by banning European dairy chocolate from entering the US in 2015. Their knee-jerk reaction was NOT to improve themselves when the competition was selling a... read more
